Family Zivkovic consists of the father Igor, mother Jelena and their five sons, Nemanja (12), Luka (10), Momcilo (7), Dusan (5) and Vukasin (2). They were living in the old set of shacks for the workers, so the biggest problems were bad isolation, moisture in the walls ant the ceilings and a fifty year old damaged bathroom with no proper functioning plumbing, sewerage and electrical networks.

The total amount of help provided was 367.823 RSD, and these funds were raised thanks to the three sport-charity manifestation in the project of TROJKA IZ BLOKA (tournament in fast basketball 3 point shootout game held in Borca and Visnjicka Banja and also thanks to the beach volleyball tournament named “Odbojka iz bloka” held at Ada Ciganlija).

What makes this project special is the collaboration with Igor Rakocevic and Forma Ideale company. It shows us clearly that besides the big amount of people who are ready to help both from Serbia and the rest of the world there is also a growing number of sports celebrities and companies ready to give their support to the Charity organization Serbs for Serbs and to the hard work of its members in providing better living conditions to  socially vulnerable Serbian families with a lot of children.

More than 4500 people were the participants of these events, and the final number of funds raised for the socially vulnerable families was more than 5.6 million RSD.
